Outback Concerts Presents
In Collaboration: The Milk Carton Kids & Sarah Jarosz
featuring Samson Grisman, Alex Hargreaves, and Nathaniel Smith
Sunday, November 2
Grammy-nominated folk artists The Milk Carton Kids & Sarah Jarosz, with Samson Grisman, Alex Hargreaves, and Nathaniel Smith, offer a very special evening of collaborative performance in front of one microphone.
Following their meeting at the renowned Telluride Bluegrass Festival in 2013, Sarah Jarosz and The Milk Carton Kids have pursued a collaboration with a depth and identity all its own. Their initial performances (on Austin City Limits and at Lincoln Center's American Songbook Series) have been widely heralded for the seamless harmony of the three singers, the unassailable virtuosity of the players, and the obvious, if uncommon chemistry, the young artists have found with one another. This fall, they are presenting it, fully realized for the first time, in a limited tour of some of the country's finest symphony halls and performing arts theaters.
Sarah Jarosz is a multi-Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who hails from just outside of Austin, TX and makes her home in New York City. Jarosz, who fits comfortably where contemporary folk, Americana, and roots music intersect, has long been embraced for the depth and maturity of her songwriting, her pure and nuanced vocals, and her instrumental mastery -- switching between octave mandolin, banjo, guitar, and mandolin as the songs dictate.

Grammy-nominated, flat-picking harmony duo The Milk Carton Kids have emerged in the last three years as a powerful voice defining the continuing folk tradition. An understated virtuosity defines The Milk Carton Kids to the delight of traditionalists and newcomers to the folk movement alike. Garrison Keillor has called them "absolute geniuses in close-harmony."
